“Pages from the book of…” is going on a Eastern European tour that will take us to Chisinau, Sibiu and Targoviste and will give us the chance to perform in front of new audiences.
The show is performed by Third Arrangement Theatre Company and directed by former Kantor actors Andrzej and Teresa Welminski.
In 1942 Bruno Schulz was murdered by a member of the Gestapo while going to buy a loaf of bread. 70 years later Teatru Welminski and Third Arrangement have created a show inspired by his stories, his drawings, his life and his most intimate thoughts. As the book opens, a forgotten world is abruptly brought to life. An old, dusty train station, a sanatorium lost in time, home to our hero’s father, his noisy and smelly bird cages and a group of wax figures abandoned by their creator… In this world we meet Josef, the alter ego of our author, Schulz. A son in search of memories of a lost father. We see as our hero traverses a reality ready-made for him and with each turn of the page we meet one of the multitude of ephemeral figures Schulz has placed in his path.
